Anyone know when the new f-one V2 wing is to be released.

Rumor is two models, a high performance wing called the Strike and a V2 Swing. Over the next couple of months this is the rumor mill, all I can say. ;)

Understood that V2 would be mainly available for schools while the strike will be the main model. Strange I find

V2 biggest size is 5m. Becomes price point model. Strike is main wing.

V2 in March, Strike in Dec/Jan.

Swing V2 will only be going up to 5.0, so you'll be looking at the 6.0 Strike. They made some nice handle changes and tension adjustments.

I'm not into the racing but it's great for washing out the R&D real quick. Hang on, this sport is going to be a wild ride for a couple of years.

Thx again Shlogger,you seem to be in the know,you a team rider or dealer???

Its hard to keep up with new gear coming out,due to price etc,so making an informed decision is vital.

How many other manufacturers are coming out with new gear?..

Naish seem to change their lineup every year.

My pockets aren't that deep,nor is my wife's sense of humor.

I've just got some friends in the biz and was able to see their preorder catalog. Looks like a very cool panel layup as well.

Pretty cool to be watching this sport grow so rapidly and the progression. One company figures out something that really works and we all benefit and you see it on the next "V". ;)

I personally just make slow updates every year. It's not a cheap sport for sure. Especially when you have a catastrophic failure.

I hear ya! My 5m v1 f-one is serving me well 12-22kts. It still has more performance than I am able to use... If I do anything, will trade in for 4.8m PPC wing, which did very well in all categories in the SUP Boarder wing test. Main difference for me would probably be that I could use it in 10kts wind too because it has more power and is better pumping for its size.

Hey flying carpet,We don't have PPC gear over here,not sure,maybe just a kiwi company.

They look good reasonably priced

I have a V1 Duotone 5m,sick of getting he board caught between boom and canopy.

Hey if you have any swing with your P.M. ask her to open the border,so I can see my daughter granddaughter and the 3day old granddaughter.

I think PPC ships worldwide now and many have a dealer in Noosa.
P.M. - My family cant visit either, don't get me started!

Hi - you seem to be in the know for new F one products. Any idea how their new inflatable wingfoil board is? and when it will be released? I'm about to buy the 135L Naish Hover inflatable but still hesitating as I heard that quite a few brands are jumping into that space next year . Thanks

They make a lot of claims but don't explain much.

The differences appear to be:
- spanwise panels across the rear third of the wing.
- only two long, apparently soft handles.
- thinner curved strut (looks like the bottom half of the Cabrinha thing)

Gorgo thx, yeah saw the promo video,they make a lot of claims,if they can back them,be the best wing available.

The 6 metre is different cut and style,wing range 8-20 knots ?????

Watch the vid,they get a lot of height.
